I think I almost envy you and your toothache. I recently had two teeth start to fall apart. An initial dental visit indicated a fair amount of work would be needed. One tooth removal (the tooth is one third gone already), 2 caps or crowns (can't recall which), a coupla fillings. No pain right now so I don't wish to tempt fate and create any.
Sure it can be annoying with the food which gets stuck in these tooth pockets, but, that can lead to a snack in the middle of the night if I forgot to brush.
Maybe if I land in the hospital again for an extended visit I'll request they tend to it. Honestly, it's not affordable at this time.
This must be colonoscopy time here in the city. My doctor just last Thursday told me I should have one soon. I told her, I'd rather not...
I found a top notch cure for me is usually borscht (with several hunks of freshly baked brown bread).
...or a tasty ( beef) tongue sandwich.
Here's to things going well tomorrow (which might now be today) in your medical appointment.
